Benny and his wife Ruthie a getting set to drive down to Florida, but Benny needs someone to look after his store while he's gone. Though he doesn't think much of him, Benny hands the responsibility over to his son, Russel. While Russel doesn't get much respect from his parents, he's better off than his brother, Ezra, whom Benny has gone so far as to disown. Ezra is currently battling with his work (coach of a high school basketball team that hasn't won in ages) and his wife (who keeps nagging him that she wants to have a baby as soon as possible) at the same time.

Now I have to tell you that I thought that this movie was just a figment of my imagination, as no one I know except my date for the evening in 1977 has ever even heard of this movie. I was a 17 year old on a date with my soon to be (1 ½ later) husband. I found it funny. Hilarious in fact. I would love to buy the movie and see it again as a mature adult, to see if it is as funny now. But alas, I've never found this movie for sale. The movie itself starts with a strange scene with a noise in the dark. When the lights come up and you figure out what is going on, I remember laughing so hard. For me, that's the way the entire movie was. Slap shot comedy perhaps.
